Featured Blu-ray and DVD Review: Red Sparrow

May 21st, 2018

Red Sparrow

Red Sparrow is a spy thriller starring Jennifer Lawrence. It deals with the less sexy side of spying, focusing on how the women who are tasked with seducing their targets would have to live. That’s an interesting premise, but it is also one that could turn exploitative really easily. Does the film manage this balancing act? Or does it fall for cheap exploitation? More...

Red Sparrow Trailer

January 8th, 2018

Spy thriller starring Jennifer Lawrence, Joel Edgerton, Matthias Schoenaerts, and Jeremy Irons opens March 2 ... Full Movie Details.

Dominika Egorova is many things. A devoted daughter determined to protect her mother at all costs. A prima ballerina whose ferocity has pushed her body and mind to the absolute limit. A master of seductive and manipulative combat. When she suffers a career-ending injury, Dominika and her mother are facing a bleak and uncertain future. That is why she finds herself manipulated into becoming the newest recruit for Sparrow School, a secret intelligence service that trains exceptional young people like her to use their bodies and minds as weapons. After enduring the perverse and sadistic training process, she emerges as the most dangerous Sparrow the program has ever produced. Dominika must now reconcile the person she was with the power she now commands. With her own life and everyone she cares about at risk, an American CIA agent tries to convince her he is the only person she can trust. More...

Featured VOD Review: Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice

July 17th, 2016

Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice

Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice came out on Video on Demand two weeks ago, but comes out on DVD, Blu-ray Combo Pack, 3D Combo Pack, or 4k Combo Pack this week. I’m reviewing the VOD, not because I got a screener, but because one of the people I game with watched it in theaters and demanded others in our group see it, so he’s not the only one to suffer. Is it really as bad as its reputation? Yes. Yes it is. More...
